I'm not interested in buying a new one...I know where to find those. I prefer to trade. I'm looking for a used but serviceable tube fore end that someone has taken off, or has left over from a project and wishes to trade or sell..prefer trade though. Hopefully a ventilated handguard, with a few attachment points, but I'm very flexible. Please let me know what you have.
